JF Wine Imports, Inc. of Largo, Florida imports and distributes wines from small wineries in France and Italy that are working with both Lutte Raisonnee and organic winemaking techniques.  Lutte Raisonnee is a step away from being organic.  It has the same restrictions and laws but with less government interference (paperwork).  This method is still controlled with certification processes during vinification and strict land management.  This natural way of winemaking was established centuries ago, long before the introduction of pesticides, herbicides and artificial fertilizers.   In short, winemakers understood, respected, and worked with mother nature to produce superior wines.  

In many areas of France and Italy winemakers are going back to this natural art of winemaking despite the arduous process of certification.  To be certified by the appropriate government agencies they must adhere to the strict procedures regarding the use of certified fertilizers, soil inspections, number of vines per hectare, and the amount of hectoliters produced.  This process begins with the inspection of the soil  and continues for three years to become certified.  Once certified and the grapes are picked the process is not over as the government closely monitors the vinification process through the bottling of the wine. 

We passionately search out wines from makers throughout the world that share our belief that sustainably produced, clean, handcrafted wines are simply better - better for the families that make them, better for our planet, and certainly better for those of us drinking them.

Our company is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals. 

We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service and quality wines available in the market.
